Backend Software Engineer - API (Remote/US) at Ergatta
New York City, NY, US / Remote
Ergatta is looking for an experienced back-end software engineer to join our rapidly growing team!
Ergatta is a fitness tech startup that is creating a new consumer category: game-based home cardio equipment. The first of these is the Ergatta Rower, which provides a challenging, competitive, full-body digital fitness experience centered around an indoor rowing machine. As fitness activity shifts into the home—rapidly accelerated by COVID-19— we believe the big winners will be those that innovate around what is on screen. Our game-based content provides a fundamentally new and different consumer experience, radically different from the instructor-led traditional offerings. Ergatta recently closed a $30M Series A, led by Advance Venture Partners and joined by Greycroft (who led Ergatta's seed round), Fifth Wall, Gaingels, and Hans Tung (GCV). 
As a back-end software engineer, you will be working on the REST API that powers the flagship Ergatta experience. In this role, you’ll have the opportunity to build new features, work on and implement optimizations for performance, and develop new ways to support communications with our front-end experiences. You’ll be responsible for turning product specifications into a scalable web service, written in Go and using PostgreSQL, that supports workout experiences used daily by our users.

    • Passion for building scalable and performant web services
    • 4+ years of software development experience, with 2+ years of experience working on

    • Ability to collaborate with UX and design teams on design execution feasibility
    • Ability to effectively translate Product, UX and UI requirements into code implementations
